The DA proposes Mobile Phone Telecommunications Facility including35 Metre High Monopole,
Six (6) Antennae and Ancillary Equipment.
The proposal raised a significant level of objection from the community in terms of siting, environmental impacts, health and amenity impacts, electro magnetic radiation, visual impacts, proximity to power lines and surrounding residential properties.
It is considered that the development does not meet Councils planning controls or standards, having regards to the height provisions within Byron LEP 1988, and the objectives of the 7(c) Water Catchment Zone.
Further having regards to the number of objections it is considered the proposed telecommunications tower is not in the public interest.
